of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a

to interrogations. for example, all officers will get 40 hours of training on the use of force and 24 hours on searches and arrests. officers will be barred from oopping or arresting people on the basis of their race, sex or sexual orientation. cameras will be installed in patrol cars. interrogations will be videotaped, and threats of violence during interrogations, once standard practice, will be prohibited. all this began two years ago when new orleans' mayor mitch landrieu concluded his police ntpartment was out of control. skede asked the justice department for help. >> the citizens of new orleans deserve a police department that protects, that serves, and partners with the community to keep our city safe. >> reporter: after a ten month investigation the department found that officers in the new orleans police department routinely use unnecessary and unreasonable force. officer involved shootings and in-custody deaths are advestigated inadequately or not at all. training is severely deficient. the report also found that officers routinely engage in race and sex discrimination during one

's vital for us to help them. you know, when a young man or young woman who deserves to go to college doesn't because they can't afford it, they lose, their family loses, and our country loses as well. when a young person goes to the college they shouldn't really go to because they can't afford the college they deserve to go to and want to go to, they lose, their family loses, and america loses. and so it's been a passion of mine that we give the middle class, not just the poor but the middle class as well, help in paying for college because it is so expensive but it is so important. and so we have in law now something called the child -- the american opportunity tax credit. it's legislation i wrote. it helped 9.1 million 235e78s get a -- families get a tax break on their children's college tuition last year. because of the american opportunity tax credit, more parents and students now qualify for tax relief to pay for college expenses, not just for two years but for a whole four years of study. it gives a $2,500 tax credit right off your taxes to families whose income is up to $180,000 a y

that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
